Hi, this is my first time posting so apologies if this subject has been covered or i'm posting in the wrong place.
Does anyone know the best way to capture stills from a dvd?
Please no jargon, use layman terminology if you do, i struggle otherwise.
I have a macbook with OS X version 10.6.2 if that helps. I already tried the capture widget and downloaded the VLC player which didn't work, presumably due to the operating system i'm running.

Just out of curiosity - why not use VLC's built in screen capture ability?
While playing the DVD (or paused on the scene) select the Video dropdown then Snapshot (or press Alt+Command+S) and it will save a snapshot of whatever video is in the player at that moment.My Macs: Late 2013 rMBP w/ 750m, 16Gig ram; 2013 Mac Pro 6 core w/ D700, 16Gig Ram; Mac mini G4, 1.25 GHz, 512m ram (server); Late 2011 11" MBA, 1.8GHz i7, 4Gig Ram, 256Gig SSD, HD3000; Powerbook 12" G4 1.33GHz running Linux; Apple TV (1080p version)
